Obituary of Peggy Gerber
Peggy Ann Gerber, age 72, passed away on January 23, 2019. She was born on April 2, 1946 to Ray and Clara Gerber in Guatemala. She was raised on Long Island, NY, where she enjoyed sailing with her father on the Great South Bay. Peggy's heart was drawn to animals - and especially her cats. Her other passion was gardening and playing in the dirt. Peggy became a master gardner and even had her own business. She loved reading - especially science fiction novels - and always loved learning new things and being informed about everything around her. She laughed easily, and loved a good joke. After graduating from Grinnell College, Peggy lived in Ann Arbor, MI where she worked for the University of Michigan Mathematical Reviews Department, and was a long-time member of the Morris Dance Group. Her last years in life were spent in Lansing to be close to family. She loved attending the school functions and sporting events of her nieces and nephews, and hosted video game nights in her home. Everywhere she lived, her friends became her family. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Information for a Celebration of Life will be made at a later date. Contributions in her name can be made to the Greater Lansing Food Bank and the Capital Area Humane Society.
